Every student admitted to Anoka-Ramsey Community College who meets the basic eligibility criteria and completes the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) is eligible for some form of assistance. Anoka-Ramsey's FAFSA code is 002332. Many students never find out that they are qualified to receive state grants, federally-subsidized student work-study and/or loans. You won't either unless you complete the FAFSA and follow the STEPS to APPLY for Financial Aid. Also be sure to apply every year.
Apply Early -- As early as January 1 each year! The earlier you apply increases the likelihood of recieving aid that you do not need to repay, such as grants and scholarships.
If you already applied for financial aid, you may Check Your Status or eligibility using your Student/Tech ID and ARCC Pin. Or, if you completed the FASFA application at another school and need to transfer to Anoka-Ramsey, you need to Transfer Your FAFSA results.
Pay For Books with Financial Aid
If you quailify for financial aid and this aid exceeds your tuition and fees, you may Charge Your Books to your financial aid account. Book charges are allowed one week prior to the semester and the first week of the term (excluding holidays). However, to avoid long lines, it is recommended that you buy your books on your own prior to the start of the term, then any financial aid that exceeds your tuition and fees will be paid to you.
Eligibility is impacted by your financial situation, your degree program, your academic process, number of credits, course attendence, and much more.
